Dark Orbit by Carolyn Ives Gilman


Original Title: Dark Orbit

From Nebula and Hugo Award–nominated Carolyn Ives Gilman comes Dark Orbit, a compelling novel featuring alien contact, mystery, and murder. Reports of a strange, new habitable planet have reached the Twenty Planets of human civilization. When a team of scientists is assembled to investigate this world, exoethnologist Sara Callicot is recruited to keep an eye on an unstable crewmate. Thora was once a member of the interplanetary elite, but since her prophetic delusions helped mobilize a revolt on Orem, she's been banished to the farthest reaches of space, because of the risk that her very presence could revive unrest. Upon arrival, the team finds an extraordinary crystalline planet, laden with dark matter. Then a crew member is murdered and Thora mysteriously disappears. Thought to be uninhabited, the planet is in fact home to a blind, sentient species whose members navigate their world with a bizarre vocabulary and extrasensory perceptions. Lost in the deep crevasses of the planet among these people, Thora must battle her demons and learn to comprehend the native inhabitants in order to find her crewmates and warn them of an impending danger. But her most difficult task may lie in persuading the crew that some powers lie beyond the boundaries of science. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

L L Love Liberation by Doris Woodard Wallace


Original Title: L L Love Liberation

Ingrid’s pregnancy unleashes a storm of unforeseen dangers created by David’s mother, Ina, in an attempt to end their marriage. Ingrid stands up to her as no one ever has because she loves David more than she fears his mother. Conrad leaves the state to avoid a confrontation with Frank Irwin. He drops back into Ingrid’s personal life months later with surprising consequences. He warns Ingrid of impending danger while David is in New York. David returns to live his worst nightmare. Ingrid looks for answers where David’s heritage is concerned, facts that can shake the very foundation of the Black’s name and change David’s future. David faces a scandal after Ingrid confronts Van Newton with her suspicions that prompts him to admit the truth that he fears will cost him his son’s respect, if not his love. The media picks up on the tragedies in David’s life and he confesses all on National Television. Ina is the key to David’s hopes and fears, being the only one who can unlock the truth that will at last answer the questions hanging in the balance between life and death, one answer that would either set him free or turn his life into a living hell for which there was no escape. An investigation by a ruthless and determined detective, who leaves no stones unturned, leads to the source of an incredible scheme of greed and duplicity that spanned more than twenty-six years and finally ends in an explosion of deadly violence as the story unravels to a surprising, almost unfathomable, climax.

White Terror by Jamie Bisher


Original Title: White Terror

This is the gripping story of a forgotten Russia in turmoil, when the line between government and organized crime blurred into a chaotic continuum of kleptocracy, vengeance and sadism. It tells the tale of how, in the last days of 1917, a fugitive Cossack captain brashly led seven cohorts into a mutinous garrison at Manchuli, a squalid bordertown on Russia's frontier with Manchuria. The garrison had gone Red, revolted against its officers, and become a dangerous, ill-disciplined mob. Nevertheless, Cossack Captain Grigori Semionov cleverly harangued the garrison into laying down its arms and boarding a train that carried it back into the Bolsheviks' tenuous territory. Through such bold action, Semionov and a handful of young Cossack brethren established themselves as the warlords of Eastern Siberia and Russia's Pacific maritime provinces during the next bloody year. Like inland pirates, they menaced the Trans-Siberian Railroad with fleets of armoured trains, Cossack cavalry, mercenaries and pressgang cannon fodder. They undermined Admiral Kolchak's White armies, ruthlessly liquidated all Reds, terrorized the population, sold out to the Japanese, and antagonized the American Expeditionary Force and Czech Legion in a frenzied orchestration of the Russian Empire's gotterdammerung. Historians have long recognized that Ataman Semionov and Company were a nasty lot. This book details precisely how nasty they were.
